Become What You Are

My ego is a dupee and a duper
And its joke has been on me
I played my part just super
And I even paid a fee

I see it so clearly now
I purchased many lies
Built identity on them wow
They gave me lows and highs

Running toward or running from
Such agony it would cause
Looking for something to numb
The pain to put on pause

It might sound a bit insane
Or extremely paranoid too
But I will not trust a brain
That doesn't know what's true

I spent my first life running
Running from the pain
I'll spend my next life fighting
Fighting to be sane

What would the world be like
If each one did their part
Told the ego "Take a hike"
And listened to the heart.
